The Hunting Lodge

1958, Oil, 204x190 cm. Privately owned

Mårten Andersson painted The Hunting Lodge in Simeå in 1958. It portrays the fragility and solitude of  the artist in his desolate house. A hungry lion guards the entrance, dead trees with thorny branches frame the scene, while the full moon moves over the horizon. A great stillness and anticipation characterize the painting, the hunter stops, the swan is on his guard in the pond when the bird of destiny flies by heavily.  A furiously beautiful and restrained painting with motifs still employed by the artist to this day.
